The pond at Stephens Lake Park was closed Thursday to skating and ice fishing. The ice wasn’t thick enough, Columbia Parks and Recreation said.
That didn’t stop Sean Laveau and Ian Nowackay from setting up a hockey goal at center ice and scrimmaging in the afternoon. The two played hockey at their respective high schools, but with no rink in Columbia, they regularly take advantage of opportunities like a frozen Stephens Lake.
This week marks the potential end to frozen lakes in Columbia this winter. Columbia will cross the 32-degree threshold by Saturday, according to KOMU, reaching 54 degrees Tuesday.
